Forum: GratefulDead Subject: TDIH- Orlando '91

Hey All,

Been too slammed at work to post much these days but i can't let 4/7 pass without my annual plug for Orlando '91. That being said, i'm shamelessly posting my original comment about this show. Seriously, this is happening Grateful Dead.

We all have our favorite years of the Dead, but this is an undeniably strong show. The R&C is excellent and the end jam has a cadence that's different than the original and works much better IMHO (menu filler for one of the Vault DVDs too). A Crazy Fingers start leads to a 2nd set with insane jamming, especially from Phil. Plus, the interplay between Jerry and Bob after Playin' and then UJB is one of the finest examples of why I still listen to the Dead everyday. First (and one of only 2) Space>>Box of Rain. GDTRFB was arena-shattering. I cannot get enough of this show. I think this is the best Bruce show but he is not in charge, just pokin' around. Play this show LOUD!!

Hope all you Heads are well. e

Boy you ain't kiddin.'
This UJB is fairly spectacular.
The jamming in and out of the tune is clearly inspired; I hear Jerry really getting off playing with and against Bruce Hornsby's accordian. Jer hung around for a long time after the main body of UJB is over, sortin' it out on the outro jam.
This was no Playin'-> UJB then quickly ducking behind the amps for Drumz to begin.
BTW one of the finer recordings of Hornsby on accordian I have heard.

You're right, they just want to keep on going in all those jams. People bag on Hornsby's accordion but i think it adds a lot of texture here and just plain sounds cool.

Really glad you enjoyed the show. One unfamiliar listener is a grand success to me. e

Make that two unfamiliar listeners. It's a wonderful show. The Baby Blue is sublime - another case of having to stop what I was doing, I was so blown away. It's a good example of the later, croaky Jerry voice being actually perfect for the song. It's spectacular.

the R&C is the shit if u ask me - but not sure what you mean about the outro - same as when JGB did it right.
